Don’t hesitate to ask customer service questions too. Calling them by phone for a quote is the greatest way to do receive prices from each transporter. It gives you the opportunity to solve any concerns you might have so that you can more honestly compare each transporters’ prices and services after you’ve gathered several quotes.

Writing your questions out before you decide to call around for rates is always a good idea. It’ll help you stay organized while you sort through the different companies.

Book your shipping process with the salvage auto transport company at least a few weeks in advance.
